Formatted abstract
Giving parenteral antibiotics to patients at home compared to in hospital presents unique challenges.

The number of visits a health professional can make to a patient’s home per day and the stability of an antimicrobial drug in solution may restrict the choice of therapy.

Novel administration methods and devices allowing bolus dosing or continuous infusions can be used to enable convenient and practical home treatment of many serious infections that have no oral therapy available.

Identifying suitable patients and antimicrobials as well as appropriate monitoring is key for treatment to be successful.
